I got this free sample from ChineseTea-shop.com. They sent it all the way from Singapore! Can you believe that? Anyway, I’m not sure what I was thinking when I chose the Jasmine tea for my sample as I don’t really like Jasmine teas. So, read this review with that in mind. For a Jasmine tea, this is really pretty good. I’m not sure whether it is a green, oolong, or a white, or whether Jasmine tea can be a tea without a base?? I used 3 g of tea in my tiny infuser cup (I think its somewhere between 4 and 6 oz). I may have used too muh tea for the size cup. It’s a little bitter, but I kind of like the bitter against the strong jasmine flavor. The tea leaves are beautiful curled uo leaves when unsteeped. If you like jasmine tea, you’ll love this.

The tea base is probably green; although oolongs are also used, they don’t look like that. If you still have any (or if you encounter anything similar), I’d suggest trying 45 seconds to 1 minute at 80 degrees. That will likely bring out the jasmine and any sweetness in the green without drawing on any bitterness.

I think I do still have some of this left in my tea drawer. Do you mean 180 F?
